    I noting some of the toy photos on this site, I was thinking about setting up a photo box to take photos of items I'm selling. Before I do that I just made a simple set up.

    I picked up a posterboard & used novels to hold it in place. With the camera on a tripod I took photos of the Simpsons figures using just the camera's flash.

    Noting the shadow, I set up light above & took the Marvel Legends figures that also used the flash.
    [​IMG] It does cut down on the shadow a bit. Still there a little.

    They came out pretty good for just spending 52 cents on the posterboard. So are these decent or should I flog myself for offending the photo masters?

    I can't decide to move this to Toy Ark or Fan Art ...

    Either way, too much shadow. Get some more backlight, the shadows ruin the picture you're shooting for. A proper photoshoot won't require the flash at all.

    You need some kind of diffuser, the light is too harsh.
